VGF fixed weeks?

Hi guys,

I have closed at the VGF (whoop whoop!!) but 1 thing I couldn't quite understand was how the fixed weeks work and how these might affect me as a non-fixed week dvc member at VGF?

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated!!

Up to 35% can be sold as fixed weeks.

For example, for 100 studios, up to 35 can be sold as a fixed week.

Bottom line is, in any one given week, its possible only 65% of the rooms in a certain class may be available for booking with points (making it a little harder to book, and 11 months that much more important)

If you typically go the first week in Decemeber, week 49 might be a good fixed week for you. You pay a premium for that, but your ressie is guaranteed. The fixed week owner may cancel that ressie at which time the points would go into their account for normal usage.

The fixed week requires additional points as well.


During "Choice Season" the points for a week is 125 in a standard studio. For a week within the same season with a Fixed week, the point requirement would be 138, approximately 10% more than the non-fixed week.

The point cost is the same, but requires more points for the same week.

As a fixed week owner I can cancel the fixed week and book using points if there is availability. I can bank points that I don't use just like any owner.

The fixed week option guarantees me my room size and view category.
